    All of this snow here in the Northeast is attracting some new players to snow removal...the guys who drive around looking for unplowed driveways and do them dirt cheap using everything from stick plows to snow blowers with no mufflers to ATVs and pickups with plows made out of plywood. And it seems they're finding customers too...homeowners who are weary from all the shoveling but not willing to hire a professional. I'm not complaining...finding it kind of amusing really.

    Nothing beats the guy I saw a couple years ago plowing a parking lot with a blue poly barrel cut in half and somehow mounted on his truck..it didn't look like it worked too well since it was kind of crumpled looking, lol.
